“A personalized account of how the author felt riding in a black-and-white in a high-crime area…There’s always something happening—always somebody with a story to tell.” – Los Angeles Times

I subsequently discovered Ghetto Cops returned, via my Kindle and I quickly ordered it. I was delighted to read the book again. It has been somewhere over 30 years since I last read it. I remembered most of the officers in the book, having the pleasure to work alongside them. Most of the best officers that I met, or worked with, came from Compton PD ( I served 31 years in LE). I really enjoyed reading the book and it brought back many memories. I found that working in Compton was part of the "greatest show on earth." I recommend Ghetto Cops. I also would like to recommend "Vice," by John Rick Baker. "Vice" is also an excellent book about being a cop for Compton PD.
